Many Americans who dream of a little piece of land and self-sufficiency are finding that they are stuck in the suburbs ... either for jobs or because they bought a house and can't afford to move. With jobs and kids in the mix, they feel like they just don’t have the time to work toward self-sufficiency.

Wendy Brown lives in the suburbs of Southern Maine where she is, literally and figuratively, growing roots.
